Creeking Crickets Full Length Download
Creeking Crickets was recorded by a creek in the summer of 2004. The creek sounds are very sparse and in the background and are not audible to the casual listener. (it is a very small creek!) This soundscape was recorded during an unusually wet and cool summer. Tree frogs were in their element, as you can hear in the latter few minutes of this soundscape. Surprisingly, this was recorded in the exact same spot as the "Frog Mantra" and "A Froggie went a Wooing" were recorded 2 years earlier (featured in the Spiritual Serendipities CD). At that time there were practically zero insects. Now there are zero frogs. On those usual hot dry mid-summer weeks this creek almost dries up. Not this year! Comparing the two recordings illustrates how every moment is unique in nature. Differences in climate variation, as well as cycles of animal populations can create totally different ecological niches for species each year.
